    It is not leaking at one of the yellow brown ports. it is coming from the end. It looks like the end screws off. and open.

    If the end screws off,then use teflon tape on threads and screw back on.

SOURCE: Fuel Injectors leaking

Where the injector's mount to the fuel rail and into the eng. there are o-ring's.Check the o-ring's for damage.If the o-ring that seal's the inj. to the fuel rail is damaged it will leak alot from the pressure of the pump and make the car act like it's running on 3 cylinders because there is no fuel going to the cylinder to ignite.If there is a bad seal in the area where the inj. goes into the cyl.head it will leak a little and should be fixed as well.When installing new o-ring's lube them up litely for a easier install.Be sure to clean the gas up so you dont ignite any spilled gas.Hope this help's.

SOURCE: Fuel injectors leak at fuel rail

Get some new O-rings, and this time put oil on them before you insert them into the fuel rail. The regulator is alright.The problem is that the o-rings can roll up, or twist when push em in dry. Had this problem once, easy fix, but was frustrating.

SOURCE: starts an dies in a few seconds

Check the charging system.
If the charging system is not charging it will not energize the fuel pump relay after start and the vehicle will stall.
If this is a 4 cylinder engine remove the blue charge relay in the under hood fuse box and see if it will start and run. If it will then mostlikly the alternator may not be charging

Why is there emisions of unburned gas coming from my Kia Sedona 2003?


you will have to check the ignition system, plugs, wires, fuel injector not working properly, leaking or on time is too long allowing too much fuel into the cylinder, computer sees the temperature as colder than it really is allowing more fuel to be injected into the cylinder, dirty valves. you don`t say if the reading is HC or CO as HC is raw fuel not burnt and CO is incomplete combustion like a miss fire or not burning all the fuel in the cylinder.

Gas leak in engine compartment.


Without looking at it, If there is raw fuel anywhere up top this is what i would do:
1. check rubber fuel lines on the intake. easy fix if leaking
2. check or replace the fuel injector o-rings they are $3.00 per set easy fix.
3. check cold start injector for fuel leak also easy fix

If no fuel leaks can be found in lines i would go straight for the injector seals but in noway would i let this stop me from buying the car if thats all thats wrong. even if an injector is cracked it is under $80.00 fix. here is a link showing the injector and o-ring position http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/search/Fuel+Injector/02521/C0024.oap?model=Legacy&vi=1269996&year=1997&make=Subaru

I have a code reader and the code is P0171 P0174 System too lean. what makes the system too lean?


P0171 - Fuel Injection System Too Lean Bank 1
Possible Causes:
- Intake air leaks
- Front Heated oxygen sensor may be faulty
- Injectors may be faulty
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Lack of fuel
- Mass air flow sensor may be faulty
- Incorrect PCV hose connection

P0174 - Fuel Injection System Too Lean Bank 2
Possible Causes:
- Intake air leaks
- Front Heated oxygen sensor may be faulty
- Injectors may be faulty
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Lack of fuel
- Mass air flow sensor may be faulty
- Incorrect PCV hose connection

What Causes These Codes: Fuel injection system does not operate properly. The amount of mixture ratio compensation is too large. (The mixture ratio is too rich.) The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the engine Air/Fuel mixture ratio, the actual mixture ratio can be brought closely to the theoretical mixture ratio based on the mixture ratio feedback signal from the heated oxygen sensors 1. The PCM calculates the necessary compensation to correct the offset between the actual and the theoretical ratios. In case the amount of the compensation value is extremely large (The actual mixture ratio is too lean.), the PCM judges the condition as the fuel injection system malfunction and light up the engine light. The codes is usually set when there is an intake leak after the air flow meter, before replacing any parts check for loose or broken hoses and intake gasket leak. On Ford some models dirty air filter, and dirty or faulty air flow sensor are the cause of the problem.

Fuel smell in 2005 , f-150 just when I stop at a stop light, cannot smell when driving. Very heavy fuel smell.


If it is fuel injected, I would inspect the injection system. I had an injector that was leaking an puddling gas on the valve cover area. If not that, then generally check around for a leak in the fuel system / tank.

When i take the intake plenum off, there is fuel sitting in the left hand side(fuel press regulator side) 1995 chevy blazer. the fuel injection got replaced last summer and i replaced the regulator a month...


Wow, that's interesting, I'm trying to think how you could be getting gas in the oil. I'm guessing the gas on top of the motor is coming from a leaking O-ring. You maybe have a nick or tear in one of the O-rings in that area. It might only leak at certain temperatures with things expanding and contracting. Try wiggling some of the lines and fuel pressure regulator to see if you can make the leak a little more obvious. As far as gas in the oil the only thing that I can think of is leaky injector and the gas running down past the piston rings. I guess it could leak down past the intake manifold into the lifter valley but, I find that hard to believe. Good luck with that one, have a Happy New Year!!!

2000 kia sportage trouble code po171 once in awhile,runs lean when cold,ok warm. i have 2 of these cars, changed over , map, tps ,idle sensors. also changed fuel injectors, filters ,fuel pump,fuel pressure...


I have 2005 Kia Sportage with a check engine light. No other symptoms. I was told by Kia and Local mechanic that it is the fuel injectors. Error Code states that Fuel injectors are running lean. Put Master airflow- no change. Ran engine test with propane to run rich and trim never changed from 15. Car runs great. Kia dealer said that this is because we use Ethel in gas that it effects the alumium fuel rail delivery to the injectors and that it is necessary to change all of them .Kia Dealer wants $1,000.00 deposit to place order 6 fuel injectors from Kia. (Has anyone heard of that?)Also put fuel injector cleaner in tank.Does anyone have any suggestions before I spend over $1,000.00 to replace all 6 injectors or possible idea of what could be wrong?
